I did not mean to confuse anyone.I am looking for the answers.But think about it.All of it ties together.When you have the whipple they take out part of the pancreas. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ -- The pancreas houses two distinctly different tissues. The bulk of its mass is exocrine tissue and associated ducts, which produce an alkaline fluid loaded with digestive enzymes which is delivered to the small intestine to facilitate digestion of foodstuffs. Scattered throughout the exocrine tissue are several hundred thousand clusters of endocrine cells which produce the hormones insulin and glucagon, Plus A Few Other Hormones. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ -- It is a complex issue that only an Endocrinologist understands. I am simply looking for answers.
